That is certainly the last thing I would try. headers and footers
can be setup with fancyhdr or scrlayer-scrpage or with tools of the
involved class.

yes. Pageanchors are setup with atbegshi too, and avoiding side
effects needs quite some knowledge. Drop the idea to use atbegshi
unless you can come up with a very good example that demonstrates
why fancyhdr or scrlayer-scrpage doesn't work.
